This week's challenge is based on the project on page 26 of Wendy's first book. If you don't have the book, no worries. Lori makes sure that anyone can join in. All you have to include in your piece (besides at least one Wendy stamp) is an ATC in the horizontal position and a chipboard circle.
I did another piece on a 4x4 coaster, NOT in my usual color palette, and here it is:
I had some purplish paper cut from one of the collage pieces I did at the Lynne Perrella workshop and covered the coaster with it. Over that I stamped one of Wendy's backgrounds in clear ink and embossed it with Zing's very tropical apricot powder. Wowza. I think I was so happy to see sun after almost two full weeks of gray skies and lots of rain, that I needed some brightness.
The ATC itself was a textured white paper colored with distress inks (spiced marmalade and mustard seed). The words were computer generated, something I do when I can't find a rubber stamp that says what I want it to say. As for the chipboard circle.....I used Wendy's watch case Art Part, maybe not technically chipboard, but close enough, I say. I colored it with an eggplant paint dabber, highlighted with gold paint, and attached it to the ATC. Inside I glued some interesting paper, and a ring of microbeads and glitter (AKA Beadazzles).
Final embellishments: some Wendy flowers and a Tim wing and butterflies on grungepaper. The significance of the #29? This is for an occasion, and the number is a date.
I still can't stop talking about, and thinking about the Lynne Perrella workshop, and happily, I also can't stop creating things inspired by it. If your name is Elena, you can stop reading right now, because the next photo is of a piece that is for you! Those of you who know my good friend know that she LOVES the zetti style of art made famous by the very colorful and talented Teesha Moore. While I admire that work greatly, it is not my thing, but I wanted to do a collage for Elena that kind of gave a nod towards the style, while still remaining "me." This is about as zetti as I can get:
It was definitely influenced by what I learned at the workshop, it's a little bit zetti and also totally Eileen.
